Happy Birthday Blake’s 7

It seems amazing that Blake’s 7 is 40 years old now. I can remember being so excited to see each episode when it came on TV every week. I’m still a big fan, and looking forward to hearing the new stories coming from Big Finish.

The Expanse Season 2

I watched season one after reading the first book, Leviathan Wakes, which I really enjoyed. The TV series is no way as good as the books, and I think the TV show doesn’t do the best job of making sense of what isn’t a terribly complex story. I’m much more at home with the books now.

Season 2 was ok. Not amazing again, but certainly in keeping with the first season. Apparently season 3 is already being filmed, which is a good thing I believe. I’ll certainly watch it.

Big Finish: Survivors – Series 6

I’ve been waiting for this for some time now, and really looking forward to it. Today it is released, and I’ll almost certainly be buying it today.

In preparation for series 6 I decided to listen to all previous 5 series in order. That’s the Big Finish series of course, not the original television series or the remake. I thought it would be a good wait to get ready and have the timeline and stories straight for series 6. I’d forgotten just how good Big Finish have made survivors. They’ve done an amazing job on it. It’s totally consistent with the original and yet extends it seamlessly.

When I’ve absorbed series 6 I’ll let you know the verdict.

Watching Star Trek, from the start …

I’ve just finished watching what was the final iteration of Star Trek, “Enterprise”. Of course “Enterprise” was set before the original series of Star Trek, but was the last to be made. Having watched it I’ve now started watched the original series from the start as it’s just turned up on netflix. In fact, it isn’t the only Star Trek series that’s arrived on netflix. In fact they’ve now got the original series, TNG, DS9 and Voyager too. So I now have a unique opportunity, I can watch every episode in strict chronological order.

And that’s what I plan to do now. I’ll be going through the lot!

Doctor Who, The Pursuit Of History

I’m really looking forward to listening to this as it brings back a character from one of the previous seasons of the fourth doctor, played by David Warner. His was a really good character, and he appeared in two episodes. I’m glad that he’s back in this story, as not only is it a good character, but played by David Warner makes it a great listen.

I’ll let you know when I’ve heard it.

Doctor Who, Shadow of the Past

This was a recommendation from the Big Finish site and I thought I’d really l really wanted to hear it because it was read by Caroline Johns herself and I thought her Liz Shaw was a great companion.

This story was excellent. A bit more cerebral a story and I was glad for it. I have to say that I really enjoyed it and so much so that I think I’ll probably try a few more Liz Shaw stories.
